Honest question: Why do the folks who hire managers for mature companies hire people who do the same darned things as the people they just fired?
Does the hiring committee ask them what they plan to do?
If so, when the candidates answers, does anyone point out that the five predecessors did the same thing? Does the committee think they will do it better?
I think it may be because many on the the hiring committee know how to play politics, but don’t understand how business works.
